Funny True Story

Barbara was a Special Education Teacher for 30+ years and she has talked with many of them about their vacations, weekend and trips. She asked one of her students how his trip to Grandmother's went.  He said it was terrible.  A Fox got one of the hens and left a whole nest of eggs.  Grandmother took the eggs and put them under a duck that was nesting.   The chicks hatched and things went along fine.  (Barbara actually called the child's mother to verify that this part wasn't a tall tale.)

The mother duck took the whole brood down to the pond and swam away.  The ducklings did likewise but the chicks all drowned.  Chickens don't know how to swim.  To this day, I will say peep, peep, glub, glub and Barbara will smile.
